The Line: Angers 12/5 Draw 2/1 Monaco 7/5
This one should be a good game. Angers are very good at home , tough to beat and a team that are defensively very sound. Anger will host Monaco the team in second with just five points seperating them, Monaco have been one of the best defences in france for the last couple of years but they have struggled at times this year with both injuries and form of individuals letting them down. Offensively goals have been a struggle , the loss of Anthony Martial really put Monaco back a step or two and they havent properly recovered from it. Silva,Mouthino and Carillo have the quality to win games and with Traore coming into form the team has now won four of their last five in all competitions.
Angers are a team that have done extremely well after being promoted last season. Angers are in fifth at the moment and have only lost at home once this season. The team will take great confidence into this game all be it against one of the best teams in Ligue 1. Defensively this is a team that doesnt concede alot and they have kept eight clean sheets at home in eleven home games including a 0-0 draw with reigning Champions and run away leaders PSG. I think we have to respect the home form of Angers here and at 12/5 they look the value bet.
For me though I am going to take the draw. At 2/1 this is probably the tighest price you will get on a draw . For those looking for more value the 0-0 at 11/2 and the 1-1 at 9/2 maybe the way to go.
